Just a snipet ...

Things are going well.

Our baby room is coming together. Our home is coming together. Despite crossing many things off (and knowing that what needs to get done will indeed get done), our to do list can be daunting,(some days more than others!) but it will work out.

We are excited to watch my expanding waistline, but my feelings are not so certain about the increasing numbers on the scale. Watching the numbers go up has never been a good thing and reconciling that change while in a 'heightened emotional state' feels like walking a tightrope. (However, I did try on swimsuits last weekend - never my favorite activity - and while it was NOT fun and we did not actually purchase a swimsuit, I survived and walked out of the store laughing rather than crying.)

On the extremely urgent scale, I finally selected yarn to make a blanket for the baby. It is colorful and happy and I am excited to work with it - as soon as I pick up needles in the right size!

  1. Oh, Heather! I can so relate to your ambivalent feelings about getting bigger. It's a good sign that your child is growing, and yet... feels strange. For me, it was the beginning of putting my identity and desires behind my child's. I don't know if that makes any sense... anyway, I gained 60+ lbs in my pregnancy and now, 7 months later, I've lost all but 8 of those pounds! Without trying at all. Breastfeeding burns calories like CRAZY! So, enjoy your child's development, and know that the gain is good. I love you!
